My Favorite Workout Routine

Today’s Blogger Challenge Topic is to share my Favorite Workout Routine.
My favorite workout is a long run. I love setting out my clothes the night before and getting up early to head out. My pre-run routine is to eat a banana with some dark chocolate peanut butter on top and then head out. My favorite route takes me about 1/2 mile to my meet up spot with K and then we head 3 miles to the beach and back home.
We run slow on a long run, so it takes a while to feel tired. And, with company the miles fly by. There is nothing like the feeling of accomplishment after finishing a long run.
But, that is only a few times a month. So, I have to come up with other workouts that I enjoy to keep myself motivated. Lately, with my knee being a little cranky, I’m trying to cut out the elliptical and the bike for a while. These seem like the activities that make my knee angry.
So, I’ve been on a new plan – run 3 days a week, yoga 1 day a week and strength training 2-3 days a week. I’ve been on a roll with doing some workouts at home, so here are a few of my favorites. I’ve saved more on my Pinterest Workout Board if you want to go check those out. My favorite workouts come from FitKnitChick‘s Home Workout Page. Check out her link for some great home workouts – they’re all great. My second favorite workout source is Blonde Ponytail, check out her page, too.
